2013 Ole Miss spring game results: Defense dominates injury-shortened Grove Bowl

Stacy Revere

Ja-Mes Logan shines for Rebels offense struggling for points.

Wide receiver Ja-Mes Logan was the standout offensive performer at an abbreviated Grove Bowl Saturday, as the Ole Miss Rebels closed spring drills. Due to the number of injuries hampering the Rebels, coaches opted for a short scrimmage between the offense and defense, rather than dividing the team into the customary red and blue squads.

Logan, a senior wideout who placed second on last year's Rebels squad with 43 receptions, caught five passes for 101 yards. Sophomore receiver Cody Core caught a touchdown from Khalid Purnell, the scrimmage's only score. Sophomore Maikhail Miller was the best of the Rebels quarterbacks, completing 7-11 pass attempts for 46 yards and leading the team with 60 yards rushing.

Defense dominated the day, led by ten tackles from all-SEC linebacker Denzel Nkemdiche. Defensive back Trae Elston had four tackles, three pass breakups, and half of a quarterback sack. Junior linebacker Serderius Bryant recorded an interception, 1.5 sacks, a pass breakup, and three tackles.
